So yesterday was a good day, ha!
and had fabulous paella for lunch (and there was so much left over that the boy and I will eat the rest for lunch today which is even more fabulouser), and then I sat down and wrote 1,800 words and finished the rough draft of the novel-in-progress. That was totally worth leaving the dirty dishes sitting there.
I vacuumed the annex, and played an instrument or two, and started glueing the paper pattern together for the t-shirt I want to make, and taught a few students.
And then some time in the afternoon I got an email telling me about an online workshop called „Book Covers for Authors“ and I actually enrolle. For real money. Since I don’t want to spend loads of money on book covers for novels one to three because I have no idea if there’s a market for them (if there is it will be a really small niche) I have been toying with the idea of making my own for a whle. And yes, that’s one of the things people tell you not to do.
And I’ve been learning about book covers and have been studying them for a while now, and I think I can tell a good one from a bad one by now. Of course that doesn’t make me a designer. But mabye, maybe with a lot of work I can make myself a decent book cover. There are authors who do their own and some of them are really good, even.
So I’m really excited about that. Which mans I will have to watch the course (ugh, video) and do the homework, and then sit down on my butt and make actual covers. (Let’s not forget that I still want to overhaul all three websites, and learn how to do video, and spin another 140 grams of 3-ply fingering weight yarn on a spindle).
Never a dull moment around here.
And I’m planning to wear the new t-shirt tomorrow evening. Of course. Never mind that I haven’t even put the pattern together yet.
